Hannah & Billy/The Ashford Estate

The Ashford Estate, Allentown, NJ

I as really looking forward to capturing Hannah & Billy's day. From the good times we had during their E Session in Boston I knew these two were going be so great to capture. And it was. It was an absolutely perfect day. Even the weather was co-operating. It was calling for rain but instead just remained a little cloudy and 45 degrees. They said their vows to each other in the Ashford Barn decorated by Viburnum and Jasmine and her crew from This Moment Events. The Atomic Funk Project had everyone dancing the night away. Thank you Hannah and Billy for allowing me to be a small part of your big day. You guys rock!
And now here is their story:

Hannah and Billy met in the fall of 2012 when Hannah decided to run the Boston Marathon for the American Liver Foundation’s Run for Research Team. Billy, who had already been on the team for a year, was involved in organizing and promoting events to help out new runners. As they started attending the same events, and having breakfast with the team after Saturday morning runs, they became fast friends – eventually spending most of their time together. By the time the Boston Marathon came around in April 2013, they were basically inseparable.

Despite, the bombings at the marathon finish line, Hannah and Billy found the positive in the tragic events. Their bond had been solidified, and their lasting friendship-turned-relationship had become permanent. Hannah and Billy both knew that this was “the one.”

In January of 2015, Hannah and Billy enjoyed a family trip to Madrid, Spain. One rainy evening, the two went out for dinner, just the two of them. After dinner, they decided to take a walk through the market and back to their hotel. Despite Hannah’s best efforts to remain dry, Billy stopped in a small park behind the hotel and convinced Hannah to dance with him. The next thing she knew, Billy had gotten down on one knee and asked Hannah to spend the rest of their lives together. After shedding a few happy tears, she said “YES!” and they walked the rest of the way back to the hotel to celebrate with Hannah’s family.

One year and one day later, Hannah and Billy tied the knot at the Ashford Estate in Allentown, New Jersey. It was hands down the best day of both of their lives. From the 400 votive candles lighting up the barn for the ceremony, to the 11-piece band that kept the dance floor packed, to the rocking after party, the day was perfect from beginning to end. They would both do it again in a heartbeat!

Jeff and his assistant, Jim, were amazing from the moment they got there. They were incredibly professional, accommodating and patient. Jeff captured every moment of the day that the couple could have asked for and his creativity and eye for beauty cannot be matched. Jeff is all-around best in class and there is absolutely no one that they would have rather had capturing their special day.

Thank you so much Jeff!!!!!
